How long have you lived in Florida?
At first, it was slow. It even backed up and turned. It was strange.

I guess it depends on what you think is slow or fast. I've been watching the weather channel since Wednesday (work related to hurricanes), we didn't feel it was slow or strange based on all factors.

We thought it strange how it backed up and went into another directions, as though it bypassed the entire Cuban island on purpose and hit the north end instead. Looked like it was sitting still on our weather channels, just before backing up.

Get with the program, C. I posted that comment on 8/27. 5 1/2 days ago, when he was squggling around the 1st two islands. That's what was happening THEN!

There was no need to be rude. I stand by my comments and as again, how long have you lived in Florida. If you look, you actually posted the comment at 10pm on the 28th, not even three full days ago. And it's Callisto, not C.

Original thread & post was mine on 8/27/2008 @ 3:54pm EDT. And considering it was also formed and active at that time, and how long it's taken to get where it is now - slow moving, and worrysome for many, many more areas/people if it had moved faster. And as if it has anything to do with anything to prove my point, 1985, seasonally, permanently, 1999. Why? According to your info your in NC. So? Rude? No. You're just not up to date with the posts. And as others have agreed with me, I don't think I'm too off-beat. But whatever.

Sichuan, On my original post there's another link I liked better than NOAA. Try that too.
